Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun


Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I tried a bit of rouching effect on the bottom tier, shimmer on the top two tiers and stenciling the middle tier........wasn't sure if I should put a flower or not but I think the pop of colour goes well!!

Stunning! How do you get your fondant edges so sharp! I use ganache underneath my cake and I can get that sharp but the fondant edge is still eluding me! I'm a fan of your work!!!

Hello, thanks for the kind words. It takes a little practice, your ganache needs to be super smooth as any little lump or bump will show. I also leave it out in an air conditioned room for the night to set up. I use a smoother and a piece of plastic like acetate ( I actually use old cleaned exray film too) and sort of pinch the two together. If your ganache is nice and firm you will be able to do this, also roll your fondant to about 5mm thick. Good luck!!
